Ghosts and Goblins.... Oh My!!! Actually a Cheetah, Baseball and Prisoner!

Halloween 2009 has come and gone!
With the addition of Parker this year, we didn't spend as much time going from door to door, but we still had a great time!

Delainey was a "Cheetah".... and don't call her just a cat because she was quick to point out the fact that she isn't just an ordinary cat!

I can't believe she looks so grown up!

Mommy was a Prisoner. This was a last minute costume that I got late Thursday night so that I could dress up at work! It was comfortable and fun!

Daddy didn't dress up, offically! He was the "New Dad" for halloween! He took pictures and went trick-or-treating with us though!

Grandma & Grandpa Harrison couldn't be hear so they sent the softest most plush teddy beary with his cute litte Halloween Sweater!
THANK YOU!!! We have it up on display, along with the card, rather than use it as a toy!

The neighbors were Bert & Ernie
What awesome costumes! Thanks Chris and Ann!

Parkers 6 Month Check-up!

Sooo, today was Parkers 6 month "well baby" check up!
We got to the dr's office and it was PACKED!!!!!!!!!  It always amazes me when places like that are so busy during the middle of the day.... Don't people work!
Ohhhh... I guess I'm one of those people when I take time off work to care for the kidlets and family!*!*!*!

Anyhow - He is a happy, healthy baby who is growing and progressing VERY well.

He is 18lbs 2oz and 28" long. - that equates to the 75th Percentile for his weight and the 90th Percentile for his length.
If Daddy has his dream we'll have a 6'2" Left Handed Pitcher for the Pirates one day !?!?!?

Here are some pictures of him before the dreaded shots!
He is all current on his vaccinations and is also protected for the H1N1 Swine Flu. Both him and Mommy got their vaccinations today!

Look at all that blonde hair!!!

Nope, your not imagining things, Parker is chewing on my necklace - this was occupying him more than any toys I had along for the journey.
Just for the record - EVERYTHING goes into his mouth these days!!!

New Format

Ok, so when did Blogspot change the format?
I've never been succesful at uploading a video before, but now I don't even see where it is an option. Plus the whole multiple picture thing is a tad more confusing, oh well. All these programs are continuously trying to change and upgrade i guess!

Oh yeah - I fixed the posts so that anyone can comment again. Sorry for the inconvenience before!

Have a good rest of the day!

Football Sunday around the house!

Another weekend of not doing much around the house and WE LOVE IT!!!
Parker is not feeling perfect yet, still has a nagging cough. Mommy catches up on sleep and Daddy catches all his sports games, and hopefully they do him proud and pull out a W.

Parker is starting to sit up so much better these days, still can't do it on his own, but on the couch he can.
Here is a picture that is SOOOOO cute!

Parker will be 26 weeks tomorrow!!!!

Birthday Bowling Party

Today Delainey got to celebrate her 10th Birthday with her friends.
We went to the bowling alley with 9 other kids! It was a BLAST. The bowling alley has obviously done this before because the timing couldn't have been better! Just when the kids were starting to get tired and disinterested..... out came the pizza!

Delainey had a great day with her friends (Gretchen, Madison, Brooke & little sister Gracie, Taylor and her brother Austin, Isaac &Alex, and Kailey).

Here are some pictures! I was to busy having fun with them to take too many pictures.

Thank you Jennie, Joy, Daddy and Gram for joining us and helping to entertain Parker man so that the day was all about Delainey!

Delainey posing for the camera - oops, her eyes are closed!

After bowling in the party room - they had gift bags, pizza,
and Camp Rock / High School Musical cupcakes to dine on!!

Parker LOVES the shower!

We've determined that the baby bath is not gonna cut it any longer for giving Parker his baths. We've switched to our bathtub, but he wiggles and squirms so much that he ends up spinning around, which is fine, but today we tried something different.

Daddy handed him to me in the shower.... this works well, and really seems to relax him just before bedtime (and after a messy food sampling session!)

Now I know, some people may not agree with this method of bathing, but it works well and with Daddy's help it is quick and easy!!

Tooo Stinkin' Cute!!

Ok, I couldn't resist putting this picture up here!

You'd think that he was having a grand time by the picture, when actually he was promptly rejecting his rice cereal dinner! :-)

Mommy is the photo takin' queen this week! Daddy got a great one a couple of months ago of him laughin (the Born in 2009 picture), and now I have the tongue out to credit to my skills!

Have a great rest of the week, it is "humpday" so we are almost through it!

We are into double digits................. Delainey turns 10 !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Delainey sure is growing up! I can't believe she is already 10 yrs old.... although she acts 16 at times!! Ha ha ha

On October 12, 1999 Delainey was born, and now 10yrs later she is still a beautiful little girl!

We haven't had a party yet because her birthday was during the week, that comes this weekend (with family) and next week (with friends) while she is out of school on Fall Break.
Not to digress, but I don't ever remember being out of school this much when I was younger! The child has over a week off for Thanksgiving! Oh, pardon me, part of it is "planning days".... anyhow - back to the main event - Delainey turns 10~

We did go to the Nashville Predators game to celebrate her big day! It was a lot of fun! It was the first time Parker had been to a hockey game so I had fun taking pictures!


We Love You!

Parker gets his SECOND haircut

Parker will be 24wks old on Monday, and he just had his 2nd haircut today. We took him and daddy in this morning, and decided to give him more than just a trim.... that was probably more mommy than daddy!

The gal at Sportsclips did a GREAT job. He wasn't so keen on the idea this morning, unlike last time. Maybe it is just that he is more mobile these days. He didn't want to sit still for very long... and add into the equation that he was sleepy and maybe a bit hungry and you have a touch situation for the stylist!

He now looks like his hair is very blonde!! He looks so grown up for being so young still!! We just can't get enough!

Penn State Fun!

So, since the hubs is a HUGE Pittsburgh sports fan (Penn State, Pittsburgh Pirates, Pittsburgh Penguins, and the Pittsburgh Steelers) I try to find fun stuff for him and/or us that represent the teams. We've got Parker Steelers outfits already. Uncle Dave & Aunt Cathy got him a Penn State sweat suit for when he gets a bit older. I've ordered various blankets from a gal that PJ knew when he was very young. The families were friends.

Soooo, anyhow - today I surprised PJ with a special food dish for the game!

Take a look and see what you think!!

I ordered it through a school fundraiser. PJ said it actually tasted pretty good (it came with a vinagrette sauce mix).
I don't know if you can tell, but the pasta is shaped like little Nittany Lions.
And to top it off, Penn State won something ridiculous like 53-3.
Looks like my team spirit worked!!!! LOL.

oohhh......oohhhh....oooooohhhhh. SOOO CLOSE!!

Parker is trying his darndest to crawl. He does the "army crawl" with his legs up under him and schooches on his arms..... If only he could get the hands to move at the same time as the legs!!

I'm guessing we'll wonder why we wanted him to crawl so soon once he is on the move!!!

.... and another one makes 2

We realized today that the reason for extra slobber and a few more tears is ANOTHER TOOTH!!!

Yep, Parker now has 2 teeth on the bottom!!
Here he is eatin' a little dinner

He isn't much of a fan of Green Beans at this point!!!
